Time to shake your head

The following headline of a story appeared in today’s paper:

Stolen wallet won’t dampen a good time

A Glenrock man didn’t let a stolen wallet ruin his good time.

The man’s wallet was stolen Wednesday night at Bryan’s Place, a strip club near Rozet.

He told deputies a blonde dancer with braces must have taken his wallet while giving him a lap dance. The wallet later was found beneath a sofa cushion, but $200 was missing, Campbell County Undersheriff Scott Matheny said.

But after realizing his wallet had been stolen, the 31-year old man stayed at the strip club and had another lap dance, Matheny said.

I think it’s time to just shake your head and say, “Huh?”

Thoughts regarding Roe v. Wade

Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.

I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.

And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

These are words from President Obama today. I wasn’t aware that killing was a constitutional right.  If that’s the case, then why do we prosecute and put to death those who exercise their constitutional rights when they commit murder?

On this day, let us remember the more than 53 million who were aborted and had their constitutional rights taken away from them.

Five cops on paid leave after 1 flushes fetus

This appeared under the “States in brief” section of today’s paper.  The following story comes from Mesa, Arizona.

Police in Arizona say five officers have been placed on paid leave after one allegedly flushed a fetus down a toilet.

Mesa Police Chief George Gascon says four officers responding to a call about a possible miscarriage at a motel on Monday discovered a woman who apparently lost a fetus estimated to be 12 to 14 weeks old.

Gascon says an officer who wasn’t at the motel instructed the four over the phone to flush the 4-inch fetus down the toilet rather than take it to a hospital.

A supervisor who was reading incident reports came across details about the disposal of the fetus and shared them with a superior.

Apparently, life, dead or alive, is not important to these officers.  It’s good to see that they will continue to be paid so as not to cause any inconvenience to them.
